The first and only destination for savvy, lifestyle-conscious families, Rockcliffe's premiere haven for condominium living in a truly distinguished package starts and ends at McKay Lake Estates. Set back from the street but still part of the action, a walkway yields cobblestone-style privacy surrounded in nature's best. With a curved archway in the foreground and pillars to each side, attention to detail and exceptional planning yields formidable style at entry. Welcome to a stately semi-detached that carries the poise and elegance of an estate with complete confidence. »cont'd
Inside, an exquisite chandelier casts light over the foyer; let oak hardwood lead the way through to crisp, timeless finishes, ingenious design, and space beyond compare. The living room exudes gracious refinement from first glance – tray ceilings and pot lighting highlight art, allowing built-ins an artistic flair. A solid marble hearth around the wood-burning fireplace gives off a time-honoured vibe. Transoms over side windows allow a little more light to shine through, forming an intimate conversation zone or sublime fireside reading area.
Dining room entry points into both kitchen and living room maintain an air of formality with an entertaining-mandatory spatial flow. The room's windows grant interior dining an 'alfresco in comfort' apparition – patio doors to the second floor terrace provide an option for entertaining. Against a wooded backdrop, look out over the community; point guests toward private Pond access just beyond – the hub of picture-perfect Rockcliffe Park at its most endearing.
The off-entry kitchen door leaves chaos unseen when culinary creativity is in progress – cooking is messy business. The kitchen's top-of-the-line solid wood cupboard space excels at hiding the tools of the trade; pot lights leave quartz granite countertops gleaming, and clean, white finishes couldn't be more apropos.
Down the hall, the master bedroom's cathedral ceilings highlight refined central lighting and California blinds shield transom windows. Beyond lies the solitude of a grassy knoll and nearby trees – private doesn't begin to describe it. In the ensuite, the bathroom vanity and neighbouring walk-in closet's pocket door make perfect sense; separate water closet, jacuzzi, and shower allow simplified bliss to morning ablutions. The condo's second bedroom is a true chameleon – with a full bath in the hall, residents and guests find great benefit with use as a bedroom, den or office, each making itself at home with ease.
Upstairs, loft living is capped by demi-lune windows and a gambrel-inspired ceiling in a cheeky touch of visual interest. The coveted space lies off the beaten path – whether fortunate guests, older children or extended family call it home, it's a sought-after refuge when the soul demands a moment away. Live the true "suite" life – along with sky-lit ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet, the loft bedroom's balcony lies in restful seclusion, shared only by the treetops.
Downstairs through double French doors, the family room's access through to main floor terrace doubles its usable living space; a fabulous transition from interior to exterior in one comfortable space. Finish out the floor in phenomenal function with the thoughtful convenience of a three-piece bathroom, a finished laundry room and folding station, storage rooms, and a double tandem garage.
Aside from the the neighbourhood's world-class appeal and family-enticing charisma, Rockcliffe Park is an undeniable walker's paradise – the community's perfectly preserved forest spaces, winding streets, Mackay Lake and the Pond converge to ensure you'll never feel more in a 'summer home' in the heart of a pulsing city.
